Aerial drone survey of Victorian pumphouse heritage asset

Aerial drone survey of Victorian pumphouse heritage asset

A recent aerial drone survey by Overdrones of a Victorian pumphouse in Tettenhall, Wolverhampton has enabled Severn Trent Water to quickly understand the condition of this important industrial heritage asset in their property portfolio.

Commenting on the results Dean Overton, Director and Chief Pilot at Overdrones, said: “The utility companies have a vast property portfolio - much of it listed, like this lovely example. The job of looking after our industrial heritage can be onerous and divert precious resources for them, but aerial drone technology is quickly catching on as a cost effective, accurate way of recording the condition of their heritage assets - especially the upper elevations and roofs”.

Project architect Sarah Butler, of Donald Insall Architects, agreed: “We recently undertook a condition survey of this listed pumping station within a restricted and active site for Severn Trent Water. The only way to survey the high level parapets and roofs owing to space limitations was through the use of an aerial drone. Overdrones undertook the survey and delivered a professional and comprehensive service in a very timely fashion. The quality of images is very high and their understanding of the needs of the surveying consultant ensured accurate and comprehensive recording of the critical areas”.
